Anyone used the Sevr 2.0 for elk? love some feedback

From: TJS
I used the 1.5 for the reason of trying to get more penetration.

It worked well!

With the penetration I got last year one deer with a 2.0…. I wouldn’t use it for elk.

I use the titanium 1.5

Shoot 2 deer and 2 bears with the sect 2.0 to try expandables for the first time in 10 years. I did not take the elk hunting due to penetration I experienced. But may try again for deer and bear.

Don’t go with the 2.0, use the 1.5 for elk. This coming from a guy shooting 84lbs that killed a bull with the 2.0 and had long talks with designers from Sevr after the kill.

Uc for the win. I've only tried to kill deer with them so far, but assumed the 1.5 would be more appropriate for elk.

From: Bowfreak
The 1.5 is a good option but I would choose the Trypan. You will get good penetration with the Trypan and it will put way more blood on the ground. The 1.5 is a penetrating fool but it cuts less tissue than I think it should. Probably something to do with the pivoting blades. It just doesn't produce the best blood trails.

I've killed 3 elk w/ the Sevr 2.0 now. I too, didn't love the penetration. Broadhead stopped at offside rib on each elk. I had decent blood trails, but not great. Shooting 440 grain arrow 290 fps. I tune my bow to shoot fixed blades, but I still group better w/ the Sevrs, which is why I've used them. I've had good luck with the Hypodermics in the past with elk, but I really don't love the no collar. Seems like they take more energy to open than the collars did.

X2 for the trypan. Have buddies who have bad penetration experience with sevr

Frontal shot… best blood trail I’ve ever followed. This was the Ulmer w/ 1.5” cut. The 2” would concern me with a lighter set-up.
